Crane Viewing

Footbridge Evening Tours

Footbridge Evening Tours

2 Hours, $15 + tax per person

After a short presentation, accompany your guide on a walk of about 200 yards on a paved path to our private footbridge over the north channel of the Platte River. Enjoy a 360-degree open-air view of cranes in the sky as they travel toward the main channel to roost for the night, along with the sights and sounds of other migratory birds.
For a more immersive crane viewing experience, see our Guided Blind Tours.

Footbridge tours last about two hours. Guests may depart before the end of the guided tour but will not be allowed to rejoin the group on the bridge. Children must be 12 years or older and accompanied by an adult.
